PayPal, a subsidiary company to eBay, has become the most popular way to pay for items on the auction site. Accepting PayPal payments as a seller will increase your customer base and allow you to receive payments faster than requiring mailed payments. To be able to accept eBay payments through PayPal, you first need to accept it as a payment, then transfer the funds you receive out of the PayPal account.
